Polyphemus Caterpillar and Moth (4 photos)

This guy came crawling by the other day and was very impressive.  At first I thought it might be a Luna Moth caterpillar but unfortunately I don’t think we have them this far north.

I took photos of this large, slightly damaged Polyphemus Moth in 2011.  Incidentally, Polyphemus was the one-eyed son of Poseidon from the island of Cyclops in Greek mythology.
